Electronic Frontier Foundation | Airbnb Tech Talks | SoMa

Peter Eckersley from the Electronic Frontier Foundation will be talking about, “How Can We Protect the Internet Against Surveillance?” and sharing seven to-do items for users, web developers and protocol engineers.

In this talk, EFF’s Technology Projects Director Peter Eckersley will survey the state of Internet security and surveillance in the wake of Edward Snowden‘s revelations. It is unlikely that we can protect most internet users against sophisticated, targeted attacks by their governments, but there is more reason to be optimistic that we might shield the bulk of users’ data against the type of dragnet surveillance that the US and other governments are conducting.

Peter will discuss the things that individual users can currently do to achieve stronger communications security; the (often very subtle) technical aspects to deploying HTTPS/TLS/SSL securely on the server side; some of the important places where our existing protocols are letting us down from a security and privacy perspective; and what we could do to change that.

Free, but an RSVP is required.
